    Congrats, Garth! A pass is a pass... Remember, even the last guy in
    Med School is still a doctor!

    In one month, I'll be transferring from a Hardware Support role to a
    Software Support position supporting our company's application which
    of course is a front-end to a SQL Database. I purchased a MS Press
    book (and have other ebooks) on SQL. I have no DBA experience, I just
    want to learn the in/outs and basic functionality of SQL.

    My question is, is the test extremely difficult and what experience do
    you have? After reading the MS book, I am learning what I need to know
    about SQL, but I don't know if I should bother with the test. I plan
    on doing the labs and practice tests and feel it out from there.

    I'd have to say that the MS 70-431 book is very good at covering the
    material. If you go through it cover to cover, do all the lessons, take
    the included prep tests you will stand a good chance at passing. If
    you're going to be doing any admin work on an SQL 2005 box, I'd say that
    going through the lessons is well worth the time.

    That said, I think that I passed because I've been using SQL 2005 on the
    job since May of 2005, so I do have a bit more hands on time than the
    average joe.

    I am going to read through the book (again), do the labs and practice
    tests and go from there. I have one MS test behind me (70-270) and it
    left a bad taste in my mouth. Stupid 4-5 paragraph questions had my eyes
    crossed by the time I finished. I don't look forward to that again. It
    would be a 'feather in my cap' if I were to pull it off.
